Outlines at Oxford's O3 Gallery
Outlines at Oxfords O3 Gallery
An exhibition exploring and celebrating the shapes and patterns created by the landscape of the British countryside. Bringing together three contemporary artists, all of whom create work in response to the rural landscape, Outlines highlights its contoured forms and graphic arrangements.
From the gently undulating Oxfordshire hills, to the striated skies of the Devonshire coastline, these images create a visual language of joyous colour and abridged form.
This exhibition predominantly showcases the medium of printmaking, with an emphasis on the process of lino-cutting, via the work of Susan Wheeler and Colin Moore. Both artists exemplify how this traditional printing method (deriving from the ancient technique of woodcutting) can produce such fresh, contemporary imagery. Wheeler and Moore’s work is accompanied by that of Anna Dillon, whose painting is influenced by 20th century British landscape painting, characterised by the work of Paul and John Nash, John Piper and Peter Lanyon.
Outlines will open at the O3 Gallery in Oxford Castle Quarter for a launch celebration on Friday 31 October at 6:00pm. The exhibition opens to the public at 11:00am on Saturday 1 November and runs until Sunday 23 November.
